>>> tonight, battleground america. the looming fiscal cliff and the fight to save the economy. in his first interview since the big romney loss, i will ask reince priebus if his party is out of touch with the country. plus his plans to fix the gop. >>> plus president obama's tax push. he wants the rich to pay up but is it fair? >>> and one of the most influential spiritual leaders in the world, america's pastor, rick warren. he was there at barack obama's first inauguration. will he be there again? we're talking politics, same sex marriage and the "two and a half men" star whose christian conversion has him attacking his own show. this is "piers morgan tonight." >>> good evening. our big story tonight, countdown to financial doomsday, the fiscal cliff and the clock is ticking. 35 days left before this massive sweeping tax hike. america's now at the mercy of washington, hoping that both sides can end the fighting and make a deal. anti-tax champion grover norquist last night told me he's keeping republicans to the no tax increase pledge they made decades ago. but should his part
and these where we begin this hour of "america live." welcome, everybody. i'm megyn kelly. moments ago the president gathering with a group of taxpayers to encourage americans to put pressure on congress to make a deal on raising taxes on the wealthy. but we heard no mention of congress dealing with our soaring debtor deficit spending, or where spending cuts of any type might come or how we are going to address the larger issue: we all know that tax hikes on the rich ain't going to get it down. progressive groups reportedly held a private meeting with senior obama administration white house officials. according to the "washington post" the groups were told not to worry about any entitlement reforms or big budget cuts. the so-called safety net programs according to them are not going to be touched and the progressive groups walked away feeling very happy. the report say the white house feels it does not need to compromise, period and is willing to let the big tax hike happen on everybody. the big tax hike is what everybody will face not just the rich or the middle class. they think the
education the vast majority of what we do in america k-12 higher education is done by public institutions. it's done by public institutions that are run by states. a lot of other work including most charter schools are nonprofits or famous institutions like stanford and harvard and yale and princeton. and then, however, there's a substantial swath of activity that is for-profits, both for-profits that run schools or colleges. there is also for-profits that sell everything from pencils to paper to textbooks, to curricula, to professional development and school systems and universities and colleges. we don't often think about that. we don't often think about what the upsides, what are the downsides, how does that play out and that's what we really want to get into today. for instance, just recently our friends at parent revolution said, you know, when thinking about the parent trigger that we, you know, there's a need to regulate. we need to think about where to draw the lines and what kind of operators to permit, they choose not to encourage, for-profits be permitted to participate because
in this country. this should not be news to anyone on capitol hill. it is certainly not news to anyone in america who was not in a coma during the campaign season. lou: senate majority leader kerry read with a much different take on his meeting with the treasury secretary. an almost gleeful harry reid told republicans to put specific revenues on the table, even as republicans continue to wait for the democtic party and specific spending cuts on the table. >> i had a nice meeting with secretary geithner this morning. i always enjoy meeting with him. democrats are all on the same page. republicans know where we stand. we have sete and said it so many times, and the president has said the same thing. it has been weeks, at least two weeks since we met at the white house. and we are still waiting for a serious offer from the republans. now is the time for the republicans to move past this happy talk about revenues and put specifics on the table. lou: there is very little talk and none of it has been particularly happy on either side. the president and speaker boehner talked by phone last night. in a c

says america has to grow up and get over its victorian kind of thinking about sex scandals but i honestly believe that. this is nothing but a giant love triangle. it is a classic case of a guy in power who is -- who is there for attractive -- who is therefore attractive to some women or some men. people in power celebrities are always surrounded by those who are sexually attracted to them and people in -- men -- particularly men in power love it. they love the attention and they easily fall for the temptation. it happens all the time. they love this. being the focus of so much adoring attention. they go out. petraeus, i'm sure not the first general. not the first politician, not the first man in power the first celebrity to have an affair. but for this to blow up into some national scandal or seen as some reason why petraeus has to resign, i still think is crazy. we have little insight into this from lieutenant colonel retired john neagle who is a buddy of petraeus talked to him and said petraeus was really, re
. first, congress back to work, and back to bickering. in just under 35 days, america hits the fiscal cliff. that triggers severe spending cuts and tax hikes. several top republicans are now defying party politics and signaling a willingness to consider increasing tax revenues to get a budget deal done. but when the lame duck senate got back in session yesterday it sure sounded like the same old broken record. >> the senate has spoken. president obama has spoken. he's promising he will not sign any bill that mortgages our future to pay for handouts to the wealthiest 2% of americans. i only hope house republicans have been listening. >> we've been responsible, even as we've remained firm on this point. no tax increases now for promised spending cuts that won't materialize later. >> cnn political director mark preston is live from washington this morning. very nice to see you, mark. so the house is back in session today, and so far there are no talks scheduled between top republicans and the president, we understand. >> no, that's true, zoraida. in fact we haven't seen the congressional
to newt gingrich and the contract for america and we have been living in this gingrich contract for america, grover norquist tea party state of the republican party since then and so far, they have only been engaging in what grover called impure thoughts, which i love that's how he thinks of it, but just the very fact they would openly question the pledge is to remarkable because essentially lowers tax rates is the only thing republicans have stood for in recent elections. >> cane was using this very cute trick that republicans first starting using. they started floating this thing about oh, that pledge was made for another congress. i didn't seen it again thr the election that i yus won a year ago or two weeks ago, whatever the case may be and so peter king didn't invent that. >> that's something that grover was rebuffed. you can opt out. >> once you're in, that's it. >> yes. >> but look, the big good news for progressives here, there are two fundamental values that have driven the economic conversation for republicans in this era. one is deficit is the biggest problem. here we

for america's interests in very difficult times. when the united nations is a place where we often face significant challenges. and i understand that there was a lot of concern and anger initially about benghazi and about what happened and about the differences and reports but as this has been peeled back and more and more of the details have come out as best as i can make sense of it, the persistent criticism of her is that she represented the administration, went on talking -- went on different talk shows and went different radio shows and presented it based on intelligence she was given. this is far from the first time that a secretary of state u.n. ambassador has been given bad intelligence and repeated it publicly and why that makes her somehow unfit to serve as secretary of state is beyond me. in my view, if there's some unhappiness about the incidence in benghazi, some deep concern about security, there ought to be a broad look into what happened. why four americans died. surprise. that's happening. there is a thoro

there across america who are saying, you know what we really need, we really need people to fight hard night and day to sidetrack secretary of state potential candidate because of some things she said on -- maybe there's people out there. i don't know where they are because i've never met them but do want to know this. like what's their long game, willie? what are they doing? this doesn't help the republican party. it's like mitt romney's dumb press conference the day after libya exploded and the ambassador died. there is a time and place -- there are so many ways to go after susan rice. >> and there are real questions on whether she even has the temperament to be secretary of state. that's a big question in washington, d.c. let me say it again. does susan rice have the temperament to be secretary of state? there are a lot of people, democrats who will tell you privately that just maybe she doesn't. but we're not talking about this. this is a clown show that's going on right now. what is -- >> i love that debate. >> well, the long game is unclear and the short game is even more unclear becau

loser and the person who was corrupting america, he may find -- in addition to being a very wealthy venture capitalist and here's what we know about the president and this was a shocking for all the people campaigning with him in 2008. as soon as the election was over, he turned his entire transition over to people who were loyal to hillary clinton and when people saw that, they saw john padesta. they said what is this about. the president as president-elect and in the white house has the capacity to reinvent himself repeatedly and maybe imagine will happen. maybe they're going to say here's my new health secretary, because he knows so much about implementing this thing. >> but there is a possible teasing moment here. given everything that romney said. if the president would say to him, to ask him for advice about setting up these operations in each state, how did you do it? what should we know about how to do it? since romney said i am going to prevent this from happening, to sit there because he could have advice. >> or the president could say, wait a minute, we met with all your
